October 28 – November 19, 2022
Artist, author, and curator Chris Semtner may be best known as the horror and dark history expert who has appeared on PBS, BBC, American Heroes Channel, C-Span, and other networks and who has written articles for Biography.com, Crime Writers Chronicle, and other publications. His museum exhibits have been reviewed in The New York Times, Deep South Magazine, and other publications. In the midst of jurying and curating exhibits across the country and keeping a busy speaking schedule that has taken him to venues ranging from the Steampunk World’s Fair to the Library of Congress and as far away as Japan, Semtner continues to paint mesmerizing pictures informed by his years of research into things phantasmagorical, chimerical, and outre. The sources of his imagery are hazy memories, half-forgotten dreams, dusty old books, and seldom seen black-and-white movies.
The exhibit will be in the Jane Sandelin Gallery.
